Birthday treat
Reviewed 3 days ago

I stayed here with my partner for one night on his birthday. I requested an upgrade and was offered the choice of 2 rooms and we opted for the tower room which was 101 stairs from reception to room, this wasn't a problem for us, the room was atmospheric but really cold unfortunatel, we turned up the radiator to full before going down for dinner, on return to the room the radiator in room and bathroom were barely warm and it was too late by this time to report the issue as it was almost 23.00.
It was still a priveledge to stay in the castle.
The food at dinner was superb.......a very long wait for our cooked breakfast was noted, however we were waiting to do the castle tour and had plenty of time.
The tour was interesting and informative.
I mentioned the cold room on checkout and was offered an apology.

Splendid Stay in the Cadwallader Room
Reviewed 3 days ago

We enjoyed a very pleasant one night stay which included dinner, breakfast, a tour of the battlements and a late checkout which was booked through Travelzoo.
We paid extra and upgraded to the Cadwallader Room to stay in the castle which was the best choice. The comfortable four poster bed looked on to the window seat which was stunning and a delight. The room decorated in blue tones with a fleur de lys carpet all in keeping with castle decor. Cadwallader is reached by a small winding staircase which made it even more enjoyable as authentic.
We enjoyed a cream tea in the afternoon and the three course dinner was delicious accompanied by a bottle of Malbec. Tasty
Full Northumbrian breakfast in the morning and a great tour of the battlements including a video of the history of Langley Castle was brilliant.
The staff were all fantastic and a credit to the Hotel. We had no complaints and thoroughly enjoyed our treat staying in a beautiful castle. We would highly recommend it. Thanks again to all the staff.

Fantastic weekend break
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We’ve just got back from an amazing weekend at Langley Castle. You will be impressed as soon as you drive up the driveway. The staff, rooms, grounds, facilities and food were all excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in the Castle view rooms, which were spacious and clean. We ate in the hotel restaurant both nights and were not disappointed, some of the best food we’ve had. We also had the gentleman’s afternoon tea one afternoon which was lovely and very filling. We will definitely be back.

We stayed here for one night in a castle view room. The stay was bought by my husband from Groupon for my Xmas present. It included evening meal, breakfast and a castle tour. Fabulous every thing about the stay, the staff the castle the room the food, I had the best fish dish I have ever had in my life and I'm a real foodie, so that's really saying something. Area is great with easy access to a lot of places, we will defiantly be going back.
